This title and its shorter version, Etc., refers to the NTLC's Educational Training Content modules. As you interact with the modules, you will find them to be Engaging, packed with Teaching insights, Enriching, full of valuable Resources, and containing thought-provoking Activities. If you put all those words together, you have ETCetera and a wealth of information and ideas to explore.
The idea for the ETCetera modules was initiated in 2016 and throughout the coming year, a dozen modules were created, with additional ones being brainstormed. Each module is comprised of a content writer and in most cases, 2 to 6 short supportive videos created by faculty representing a broad range of disciplines and teaching strategies. These modules are linked with additional resources and are intended for new and seasoned instructors alike. The following topics were generated from a department chair survey and include:
*How People Learn*Course Coherence*Syllabi Development*Backward Design*Assessment*Creative Lesson Planning*Face-to-Face Teaching *Online Teaching Strategies*High Impact Practices*Critical Thinking*Diversity and Inclusivity*Undergraduate Student Research*Universal Design for Learning (Under Construction)
